The World's Greatest Music
Katherine introduces the three undisputed giants of the Baroque era - and the music that everyone should have in their collection.
Vivaldi wrote more than 40 operas and a host of sacred choral works, many of them for the female music ensemble at the home for abandoned children where he worked. It was there that he wrote his best known setting of the Gloria. What makes the Gloria in D shine out is its sheer exuberance and sense of the unique. ‘It really is a work full of character, which, from its opening rush, never stops,’ says Katherine.
